REDDING, Calif. — UPDATE: On Monday 23ABC told you about a water park in Northern California that stayed open during the pandemic despite orders to shut down. It is now officially closed.

WaterWorks Park in Redding remained open during the pandemic with the park's owner saying it was meeting safety guidelines.

Public health and environmental health sent warnings to shut down and even said the park's permit would be revoked.

On Monday ownership posted a letter on Facebook saying they disagreed with the governor's mandated shut down but would cooperate with Shasta County officials and close their doors.


A water park in Northern California is set to have its operating permit revoked after it stayed open during the pandemic.

WaterWorks Park in Redding opened its doors on June 5th, going against state guidelines and was reportedly warned repeatedly not to do so. The park's owner said it was following safety guidelines and would stay open through August.

Last week the Shasta County Environmental Health Department told the park it would be revoking its permit Monday due to "being an immediate threat to public health and safety."
